After the wrap-up of the E3 conference earlier this week, all we can say is, Wow! We knew that SpeedTree® for Games would fully support the new PlayStation® 4 and Xbox One consoles. We knew that Bungie’s Destiny™, announced as a SpeedTree® title April 23, wouldn’t be the only game that brings SpeedTree to PlayStation® 4 and […]
